Oh, hey, here we are again talking about Allo Darlin’. Remember Allo Darlin’? They have a new album coming out on Slumberland next year called Europe, and today we get a peek at what a press release calls its “more sombre feel.” The video above, culled from footage of the band’s 2010 and 2011 tours, features “Tallulah,” a reference to The Go-Betweens fifth album — a band to which frontwoman Elizabeth Morris says, “Musically, when we first discussed the [new] album with our producer, I suggested that the feel of Europe should be somewhere between A New England by Kirsty Macoll and Cattle and Cane by The Go-Betweens. My body literally becomes covered in goosebumps listening to “Tallulah.”
According to Morris, though, the album’s first single, “Capricornia,” is the song that best hits the Macoll-meets-Forster target; it’ll be released April 3 with a U.S. tour to follow. Needless to say, we are eager and ready with our cardigans on and hearts broken.
